How do you feel if you didn't finish some work? Does it ever happen? What are the reasons?
Somewhat uncomfortable but it's nothing I wouldn't be able to live with. It depends on the type of work.

Interesting work would be something stimulating, challenging, unique, and fulfilling. Uninteresting work: Mundane and repetitive.
You go to the store and see something you're interested in buying; there is a price tag on it. What parameters are you going to use to understand if it's overpriced, underpriced, or priced correctly?
I usually don't pay too much attention, but it's something that just comes naturally. If you see a shirt that's pretty basic with some brand logo over it that costs over $100 just for that logo obviously it's overpriced.
When you work and someone tells you: "You don't do it right." What is your reaction?

Sympathy is feeling concern for another person. Don't express it if the person is self sufficient and not asking for sympathy or is repelled by it.

This is not something I really think about too much or emphasize any importance on, but overall where I live, everyone is pretty polite and proper to one another and it's something that's been engrained in me since childhood, so when I see something deviate from the societal norm (of where I'm from) it can feel pretty foreign and alien. (I think that's the case with pretty much anyone though).

If someone gives me negative attitude I'll either leave it at that or give them the same energy that they're giving me. I could give a person the silent treatment yeah, pretty easily. It depends on the severity of the situation but mostly for small things I forgive easily.
